Los Angeles, Oct. 23 – There is only one suspect in the mass killings of actress Sharon Tate and four others. He is believed to be an extremely near-sighted man, and the Los Angeles police have found his eyeglasses, the Star-News has learned.
His appearance includes the feature that his left ear is approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch higher than his right ear.
The police sent a notice to most of the 15,000 optometrists in the country, beseeching their assistance “in furnishing the department information on all persons who have ordered glasses of the following prescription since Aug. 9″:
Right Eye ― 300-25×160
Left Eye ― 375 Sphere
Plastic Lenses amber
A.O. Manhattan frame
46-21 5 1/2
“There isn’t an optometrist in the country who wouldn’t recall making up a pair of glasses like that,” a Pasadena doctor told the Star News. “Only 1 person in 100 would need that combination. He couldn’t see six feet in front of his face without glasses like that.”
